tip of toe and flexor hallucis longus

Hi! I have a question....Firstly..I have crepitition beside the med malleolus when big toe is plantarflexed and moving from flexion to extension....I assume it is the muscle tendon listed in the subject line(I am not a dancer).

My main concern however, is the thickening @ the tip of my big toe (same foot as crepitition). It looks simply like a callus (MD agrees) but I wonder what causes pressure there!! I also pronate on that ankle. I wonder if the concerns are all related, as (R) knee/hip are troublesome also.

So to summerize, has anyone ever heard of thickening at the tip of that large toe before...any known causes?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
